Emergency Closure Information-JERSEY JIM COVID-19 UPDATE


The U.S. Forest Service has advised Jersey Jim to remain closed through at least May 31 due to Covid-19 related forest facility closures.  Therefore, all those with reservations May 21-May 31 will be contacted and fully refunded.  

For those with reservations June 1 through the rest of the year, so far, you are still on but with a few changes:

For Covid-19 related safety we will require of all those staying at the tower for the 2020 season to bring the following items:

  • their own disinfecting supplies (i.e., Lysol, Clorox wipes, to wipe down the cabin and spray the bed, etc.),
  • sponges or rags for cleaning Jersey Jim cookware and dishes (we will not be washing rags this year to protect our volunteers),
  • toilet paper and paper towel as these items are not yet readily available in our area.  We may send up supplies of toilet paper and paper towel if and when they become more available but please do not count on this to happen this year.

For those who feel staying in the cabin this year is an unsafe option, we are providing  FULL REFUNDS to all our customers.  Please advise us via email or phone as soon as you know that you are not coming so others can have the option to stay in the cabin.

Thank you for your patience during this difficult time and stay safe!
